The Club station

A warm welcome awaits all visitors and prospective members at our weekly club meetings. Absolute beginners and experienced amateurs will find all the help and advice they need. Our membership has a wide variety of knowledge and experience and includes several electronic professionals. The club is well organised and offers a programme of technical and not so technical lectures, talks and demonstrations and offer simple construction projects for the newcomer and experienced alike. We are also very well equipped for outside events, including special event stations and rallies.

Dunstable Downs Radio Club is a flourishing, pro- active and successful club always on the look out for new members, so if you are interested in radio of any type come and pay us a visit.

We also operate a voice repeater on 70 cm's and amateur television repeaters locally on 23 and 13 cm's.
